Happy Halloween

Aaaaah....poor Bob. Bob is my neighbor and every Halloween his human insists on dressing him up in costumes. Each year's seems even more humiliating then the previous one. Bob was relieved when his human said that this year he would only have to wear a mask. Then he saw this monstrosity and in his own words feels, "utterly ridiculous." Boy, am I glad that Miss R. never dresses me up for this holiday. I am curious. What are you all wearing for Halloween thisyear?

A Prolific Reader

Aaaaah...the classics. Over the centuries, great writers have enriched our lives with wonderful works of literature. This list of classic authors is long indeed and includes names like Shakespeare, Mark Twain, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Roahld Dahl and, of course, Jim Davis creator of the Garfield series. Indeed, in the character of Garfield we have one of literature's finest heroes, a feline of immense proportions whose greatness is surpassed only by his appetite. This morning I enjoyed a few pages out of my newest book, "Garfield Eats His Heart Out." The book was a gift from OT #17 in Miss R,'s room, clearly a child prodigy whose understanding of fine books equals his taste in fine pets. Reading of Garfield's heroic adventures has inspired me  I'm curious.  Who are some of your favorite writers?  What books have you enjoyed lately?
